't bring up the deficit. paul ryan opposes your plan. >> i know it. >> he dissented. >> and so did the president. everybody opposed -- we pissed everyone in america. nobody's doing anything for us. >> at the risk of pissing you off, what would you say to them? >> tell them we have a leaderless government and he can lead. this gentleman can't govern. he's doing politics day and night. >> erskine bowles, same question to you. if had a chance to advise obama and biden on what you want to hear about the deficit and the fiscal cliff, what would you tell them to say? are you not hearing now? >> to lead. lead from the front. just take on this enormous problem we have with economic growth. the best way to take that on is to reform the tax code, broaden the base, simplify the code, wipe out these tax expenditures and use that money to reduce rates, to encourage growth, and also to bring down the deficit. that's really attacked these entitlement problems. slow the rate of health care. make social security sustainably solvent. we can't afford to spend more in the next 17 largest countries and
the government deficit topped $1 trillion once again. the treasury says the deficit was roughly 7% of gdp and, larry, the nobel peace prize goes to the eu. the nobel committee gave the prize to the european union acknowledging the 27 blocks advancement and a peace and reconciliation and i know a lot of people think this is ridiculous, but when you think about the history there and the fact that these countries 100 years ago and what they're doing is hard, maybe it's a reminder. >> they should have given them to them 70 years ago and this is the wrong time and i'll talk about that with my pal jimmy pathkuke as. >> my only personal view is it's a ridiculous thing so i've asked cnbc contributor jim pathkukas to come back. at this moment in time with the growth of welfare states and socialism and bankruptcy and bailouts i wouldn't give the european union an award of any kind. what this k this nobel peace prize people be possibly thinking? >> given what you just said and the fact, the eu could still break apart and maybe this is like a parting gift when people are on a game show and given a partin
and that that, we can do that on a basis which won't increase the deficit. that was their position as i said for 99% -- >> but still his position -- >> hold on, joe, and you cannot do that as a mathematical matter without raising the tax burden on the middle class, it's not possible and all this debate about my studies and your studies is not possible, as bill clinton said at the democratic convention it's arithmetic. >> can we taxle the deficit without affecting the middle class? >> if i were vice president biden i'd put that back on the table and push it because it's too late to change your position 30 or 40 days before the election in a campaign that's gone, you know, for a year and a half. it's too late especially on an issue which you've been talking about every single day for those 18 months. it's too late. i'd take the view you can't change your position on something like that 30 days before the election, you can't change your position on repealing every fapset of obama ca facet of obama care or every facet of dodd-frank. we have a debate tonight, so to say nevermind, that doesn't wor
% gdp growth after you get to an almost 10% deficit spend of $3 trillion out of deficit stimulus, it's not robust growth. what happens in this election is important. clearly people have to get out and vote. what's going to happen on this groundwork and infrastructure of our economy over the next four years is going to be crucial for future generations. >>. no, it's not about infrastructure. it has nothing to do with infrastructure. david, it has to do with mitt romney's brilliant tax reform plan to lower the rates and broaden the base and cap the deductions. we're going to talk about that in the next segment with arthur laffer and jared bernstein. but don't you think there's potential here for a political and economic revolution? and if a pro-growth revolution comes, american entrepreneurs, american small businessmen and women are poised, they are poised to torque up the animal spirits and give this a great lift. i think people in the stock market are missing this, david goldman. >> larry, markets have never been good about predicting elections and discounted them. but the fact is, w
money, at some point something bad happens. >> 180% of gdp, their deficit. we're 9%. so always a good idea to spend more money than you're take manage to try to get out of a recession. that's where you're at right now. so what you're doing is a government telling you that there will be inflation, we're going to keep interest rates very low. what that does, it encourages corporations to invest. the corporation sitting there with $2 trillion on their balance sheets and what they have to do, they have to invest to create jobs. the government is saying you can leave it there and wait for a disaster, but if you do, it will go down in value 4% every year and, therefore, encourage people to lower the dollar. that makes products worth more. so we're trying to encourage people to build products and plants. >> we had lloyd blankfein and simpson and bowles talking about the fiscal cliff. this is what lloyd blankfein had to say. >> i'd be a buyer of the market. goldman sachs would -- we not only value company, we're a company ourselves. we would be assuming that our business would grow, that comp
bernanke either, larry. >> this assumes interest rates are going to go up as deficit goes up as opposed to the fact the dollar is a currency of last resort and has kept rates chronically low. i know we've gone way far from big bird, but we probably should have anyway. >> and way over time, but it's okay. it was a good discussion. thank you both for joining us. >> thanks. >> thanks so much, everybody. we have about 40 minutes left in the program and before the closing bell sounds. we have a market down about 100 points. chb >> by the way, have you seen apple shares lower? is this stock? trouble? we're going to look at the charts on that. >> then after the bell, alcoa kicking off the earnings season tonight. chairman and ceo klaus kleinfeld breaks down the numbers with us. join me for that interview. >>> welcome back. it's been quick, the move on apple. apple shares falling into correction territory today, briefly down 10% from the highs this year. they didn't stay there long. bertha coombs has the details. over to you. >> it's been watching the technical on apple here over the last it fe

's record budget deficit. but for president reagan's former budget director david stockman, raising taxes on the rich isn't nearly enough to cure what ails the u.s. economy. in october 2010, stockman told lesley stahl that all tax cuts implemented by president george w. bush should be eliminated, even those on the middle class, and that his own republican party has gone too far with its anti-tax religion. >> tax cutting is a religion. what do you mean by that? >> well, it's become, in the sense, an absolute-- something that can't be questioned, something that's gospel, something that's sort of embedded in the catechism. and so scratch the average republican today, and he'll say, "tax cuts, tax cuts, tax cuts." >> cut taxes. >> cutting taxes. >> make the tax cuts permanent. >> it's rank demagoguery. we should call it for what it is. if these people were all put into a room on penalty of death to come up with how much they could cut, they couldn't come up with $50 billion when the problem is $1.3 trillion. so to stand before the public and rub raw this anti-tax sentiment, the republican par
blankfein, the man at helm of goldman sachs. a man on the deficit reduction committee and voted against simpson-bowles will tell us why he didn't like it and what he wants to hear in tonight's vp debate. oh...there you go. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! i'm gonna stand up to her! no you're not. i know. you know ronny folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. how happy are they jimmy? happier than a witch in a broom factory. get happy. get geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. if we want to improve our schools... ...what should we invest in? maybe new buildings? what about updated equipment? they can help, but recent research shows... ...nothing transforms schools like investing in advanced teacher education. let's build a strong foundation. let's invest in our teachers so they can inspire our students. let's solve this.

a credible plan to reduce our budget deficit, that's delivering very low interest rates for us in the markets at the moment. so that is the proof that there's international confidence in our plan. >> gilt yields are slightly lower. we're waiting for spain of course to ask for a bailout. spanish yields are lower. and if they stay in those sort of levels, spain will ride their luck for as long as they can. back to you. >> i was with you on that, ross. your audio guy was sleeping there for a second. we were going to step in and help you, but that was -- it was the eads, that's very unsettling what's happening with the eads. very unsettling. i'm anxious about how that finally plays out. >> no delay. >> just flew right over ross. >> flew right over ross. we may eventually have really quick flights again. did you see this guy who is going to jump out of balloon? he'll break the sound barrier. but as you're falling, since there's no -- what keeps you at terminal velocity is the air. if there's no air, they think he'll he break the speed of sound. >> why is he doing this? >> because he can. >> yeah,
with the goldman sachs ceo lloyd blankfein plus the co-chairs of president obama's deficit commissionity, simpson and bowles. they'll discuss the fiscal issues. that's at 12:30 eastern on fast money halftime report. so don't miss that. >> and still to come here, christine lagarde has harsh words about austerity. we'll head back out to cadd ere cadre oig in tokyo after the break. kadri in tokyo after the . >>> christine lagarde calls for developed nations to do more to get their budgets in order while at the same time urging europe to give greece more time. >>> and central banks take action on slowing global growth. interest rates both cut by 25 basis points as the economies try to copy with waning demand. >> plus the states have been raised for today's debate between joe biden and paul ryan and new polls show the race for the white house has tightened. >> kelly and i might be wearing a dapper of red today. european stocks -- >> we didn't even plan it. we're just on the same wave length. >> stocks have a dash of green. not much, just a little. a welcome break if you're long in the markets after th
holes and put them into the highest income brackets rather than reducing the deficit. >> it is most regrettable that he is do that go. he is throwing a huge monkey wrench into that. and byes way, cap gains go up and he is doing his own constituents in new york. a great disservice. coming up next, since the president's debate fi asco, obaa has done nothing but debate big bird. >> and romney is climbing in the polls and all that coming up next. >>> welcome back to the kudlow report. in this half hour, president obama getting a ton of donations from china and a ton of foreign donors and it is illegal. why isn't he putting a stop to it? i don't see how they make it through each day. i couldn't do it without faith. do they vote blue or red? ralph read is going to tell us about that story. >> but first, mitt romney has bolted past president obama in the polls. leading 48-47. now he is closing in on the critical battleground states. >> good evening to you. just a few weeks ago team romney was considering giving up in ohio. maybe the most important state in 2012. now there the romney plan i
control. president obama hasn't had a budget in four years. we have seen $4 trillion deficits under his lack of leadership with our debt reaching $16 trillion. and as you know, if we stay on this path, by the end of his second term, should he be re-elected, it would be $20 trillion. that's unacceptable. >> is there a way to say that within the framework of what simpson/bowles are now providing, this time with the involvement of a lot of the nation's ceos? >> well, governor romney and paul ryan, like i said, have laid out a plan, not just to bring spending under control, but to reform our tax code, get people working again. because with more people in the work force, we'll be able to generate more income and that will be more money coming in. as you know, right now with 23 million americans struggling for work, many of those underemployed, they can't get good jobs. the amount of income we need just isn't coming in. >> yeah. but what i hear you saying is that it's going to be on your terms from your plan. it's not going to be in any way trying to embrace a revamped simpson/bowles. we know
where we talked about the fiscal cliff, resolving the deficit, and got inside goldman's business a bit. a lot of it was concerned with the warnings. >> if we do nothing, next year you'll have the rate of growth slow to somewhere like 3 to 5%. you'll have unemployment go up another 2% to around above 9%, and 2 million more people will lose their jobs. and we're doing nothing about it. >> it's very serious. i think the candidates know how serious it is. i think they're trying to avoid it, maybe in part because it is so consequential and serious. maybe the ideas that would have to be put forward will be unattractive to some people. obviously we're in a position where new discipline is going to have to be imposed. people are going to be disappointed in the consequence. >> they worship the god of re-election. they're figuring that out and how to duck every hot issue before november 6th. then erskine says the whirlpool of $7 trillion is going to hit us like a rainstorm. >> people are never going to understand how critical this particular time in history is. we have $7.7 trillion worth of eco
'm going to reduce deductions and make sure it's deficit neutral, but i'm not raising taxes on the middle class. and depending on how you look at that, it's hard to make that math add. >> said one other thing, people that are now on entitlements will not be affected at all. >> right. so if all of that -- whether it's the tax policy, i know we've talked about there's a view that it's biased, but everybody who has looked at these numbers i have not found somebody who said the math adds. >> baked into those -- >> it doesn't say the math adds, no, only at 100,000. if you consider -- you're making over $100,000 your taxes are going up. you consider those people middle class or not? >> taxes are going to go up on certain people when the deductions go out. >> but you can't say at the same time that not raising taxes on the middle class -- >> stop. he said something else, which is equally important. if we get rid of some of these stupid regulations that are impairing jobs. >> right. >> let me give you one -- >> that's an argument i accept to some degree. >> david farr, the ceo of emerson electric
, look, here's our deficit, here's our goal, here's the period of time that we have in order to fix it. and here are the measures that have to be on the table, the ones we can agree on, those we disagree on, but we have to come out with a way to so that the bleeding. that means putting everything on the table. now, i oppose -- the fact is that there can be an agreement in my view that we would all have to make some sacrifices. but for me to say i would support this, i wouldn't support that, that's not the way you negotiate. >> but you're saying you won't put the mortgage tax deduction on the table. >> i wouldn't agree to it. but the fact is that there can be an agreement. >> didn't the debt ceiling negotiation show that there simply cannot be a coming to terms between republicans and democrats? each party has their own sacred house that they refuse to budge. >> the president has agreed and boehner had agreed to a certain amount of revenue increases. boehner went to to the white house and the president napded that there be another $500 billion worth of tax increases. the whole they thin
depending on which way the electorate goes, you're going to see the deficit reduced either by tax increases or public spending cuts or a bit of both. and i do think the intrenched positions you've had the last year and a half will in the send cause someone to blink, either the administration or congress because ultimately neither will want to push the u.s. into an unnecessary recession next year. the answer is, yes, i expect some compromise. may seem foolish given the behavior of washington in the last few quarters. but having said that, i do think you're going to see some compromise. and ultimately, although it has hurt the market, it won't be too much of a negative going into next year. >> some may argue the more important elections in the next few weeks are the spanish regional elections on the 21st, which may trigger or allow spain to then ask for a bailout. do you think that's the event to watch as opposed to -- earnings season is great, it's not going to be a headwind in your view. but do we really need spain to request a bailout in order for us -- the equity markets to move higher he
should close all these loopholes and take that and take all the money and put it toward the deficit. now, there could be an argument for that, but i think the dangerous thing about him saying it is going and saying it to the national press club instead of being serious and working with the gang of eight and mark warner trying to reach some sort of agreement that you can bring both sides of the aisle to. going out there and saying stuff like that. it's incendiary. >> by the way -- >> are you trying to blame him for that? was there a camera? >> i just want to understand one thing, we clearly know that under obama, tax rates are going to go up at the top. >> obama care they are. >> well -- >> you think there's a misunderstanding among either romney supporters or a misunderstanding about romney's position on this issue? >> romney told everybody in the debate. he said if you're an upper income player, don't expect you're getting any help this time around. he said it. >> do you think people six months ago thought they were getting help? >> i think that was in their wheel house. >> but then the
deficits and gdp, it's a good number and we still have jolts coming up in five minutes. melissa lee back to you. >> thank you very much, rick santelli. let's take a check on the markets, not too much of a market reaction as for now. the s&p 500 holding steady at 1,439, the dow down by 39 points and the nasdaq eeking out a gain by 0.3 of a point. we are seeing weak innocence energy. oil prices are higher but we have weakness in the energy shares down by 0.9%. probably pressured by the chevron warning that came out yesterday after the bell. >> let's get to the road map for the next hour. is the consumer back on top and here to stay? costco beating the street's estimates as fourth quarter earnings up 27% on some higher membership fees while yum! brands brushes off some of the china fears. >> walmart going straight for amazon's jugular in time for the holiday season. it will launch same-day delivery for goods purchased online so as the rivalry grows, who will come out on top? >> toyota recalling nearly 7.5 million vehicles around the world. u.s., japan, europe and else where, on the basis of
